So I suppose that answers the question of whether or not Joseph Bertrand will be playing today. At least, it sort of does. Marcus tells us to expect JoeTales to return, but that's not a guarantee.
I mean, I expect Brandon Paul to play today, but you never know, Bigfoot could be looming in the halls of the United Center and attack Brandon, biting off his leg. I wouldn't expect Brandon to play after that.
So just because we expect JoeTales to play, that doesn't mean we should take it for granted. Stay vigilant, Illini fans. Bigfoot might be out there just waiting to bite off your leg.
